The Family Y of Greater Augusta

Ask Me Why- Scott Parker

Scott Parker is a Wellness Staff member at the Family YMCA of North Jefferson in Wrens. If it weren’t for the Y, Scott wouldn’t have pursued training at the police academy to be a police officer.

“The Y has provided me with the tools and encouragement to live a healthier lifestyle and get in better shape for the police academy."

""I really enjoy working out at the North Jefferson Family YMCA. The staff members are very friendly, supportive, and knowledgeable.

The person I am most thankful for meeting at the Y is a North Jefferson member and volunteer, Melinda Madden. The Y has helped her by the encouragement that she receives from other staff and members at the Y.

Since I began my journey with the Family Y in 2013, I have lost 42 pounds and I passed the police academy training! I just started working with Richmond County Sheriff’s Department. This wouldn’t have been possible if the Y hadn’t been there to help me reach my wellness goals for the police academy.“
